A new snowflake queen

The Compass - - EDITORIAL -

On Fri­day, Feb. 20, 14 girls from age eight to 12 dressed in their best for­mal at­tire, strapped on some fancy shoes and did their hair in their at­tempt to be­come the next Miss Snowflake at Vic­to­ria’s Snowflake Pageant. The room at the Vic­to­ria Com­mu­nity Cen­tre was filled with proud par­ents and friends, and the girls blew kisses to their loved ones from the cat­walk. Af­ter an in­ter­view and strut­ting their stuff on the run­way, a new queen was crowned. The warm and friendly nine-year-old Olivia Flynn (back left) is the daugh­ter of Heather and An­thony Sut­ton of Vic­to­ria, and will at­tend events through­out the next year as Miss Snowflake. First run­ner-up was Leah Mercer, 10, and sec­ond run­ner-up was Sum­mer Par­sons, also 10. Out­go­ing queen was Katie Burke. Other contestants in this year’s pageant in­cluded, in no par­tic­u­lar or­der, Mackenzie Sut­ton, Ma­cie Mercer, Am­ber Chislett, Franky Evely, Dakota Par­sons, Fayth Reynolds, Ken­dall Clarke, Ruby Lynn Burke, Hannah King, Shayna Prid­dle and Hai­ley King. The pageant was or­ga­nized by the Vic­to­ria Recre­ation Com­mis­sion as part of the com­mu­nity’s Win­ter Car­ni­val.
